I can't remember when I first started biting my nails, I seem to think it's something I've just always done. It's not a particularly nice habit, in fact it's downright dirty. One of the most horrifying moments in my life was going for a job interview in a trendy shop only to have to undergo a "hand inspection". Needless to say I didn't get the job and my nails were more bitten down than ever. I don't really know why I do it, but I do know that after a stressful day my nails always look savaged.
So after many years of having bitten-to-the-quick nails, I've finally invested in some acrylics in the hope of actually breaking the habit as I can't access my nails, and also making my nails look nice for a few weeks. I've even hd a few diamontes stuck on for added bling.
The only slight problem is that actually nails are a bit of a pain. I can no longer type properly, do up buttons, switch on lights, the list goes on. How do people manage with nails like this on a long term basis!?
They do look lovely for now, but part of me is looking forward to going back to normal, maybe biting my nails is just part of "me".
